Launch into STEM

The Library is pleased to announce that we recently were awarded a $15,000 grant from CITGO Petroleum to fund Launch into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)!

This program will be designed to engage middle school students (ages 11-14) in hands-on, interest based interaction with science education while inspiring creativity and curiosity. CITGO’s grant will enable us to equip our Teen STEM Lab with appropriate technology, including a 3-D printer and a zSpace: Virtual Reality Learning experience computer. Launch into STEM Learning will include open lab hours as well as bi-monthly programs planned and presented in collaboration with CITGO employees with science expertise. Programming and open lab hours will begin in January.
